Correct me if I'm wrong but I've heard that communicating with a database in Windows 8 will more than likely be done with WCF when working with C#/XAML.
If this is true then will this also be the case when working with HTML5/JS?

You can use HttpClient to download pretty much anything from the web. Why don't you configure your WCF service to return data as JSON, and use the DataContractJsonSerializer to deserialize the results?
In an HTML5/JS application, the
DataContractJsonSerializer class obviously won't be available, but the balance of his advice still applies.
